I have my gateway with NAT and Firewall enabled server. My intention is to combine my dial in service (1 external modem only) and at the same time it enables my internet connections from home. Expert what is the basic configuration of this setup? Is the client OS can be windows?

    There are a few approaches to this. What I typically do is have the Linux box 'multi-homed' using NAT/PAT from IPTABLES with a script such as gShield (And there are many other versions of firewall scripting that will work.

    Carefully follow the instructions. You will need to have an external and internal interface. Assuming your external interface is the modem, you'll need to set an ethernet card (typically eth0) to serve back to a 192.168.x.x address space ( called a non-qualified ip range or loopback ) and point your windows client systems at that.

    However, given the amount of trouble you are going to, why would you want to use dial up for this? Why wouldn't you use DSL or similar??
